After suffering a concussion Friday, Conan O’Brien took a couple minutes of “The Tonight Show” last night to discuss how his head injury occurred and what happened in the aftermath (see video below; pictured above: him slipping and hitting the back of his head on the floor at the end of a triathlon he staged with Teri Hatcher). It’s the usual Conan: self-deprecating and endearing, but there’s definitely also an off-putting element here, as the subject is someone’s head trauma and consequent hospitalization.
Anyway, no jokes from me, just a big ol’ emoticon heart <3 for Conan. Glad you’re okay, ya big weirdo. Although if this improves ratings in any way, keep up with the weird injuries. Next week on “The Tonight Show”: Conan recounts his harrowing account of waking up in a bath tub full of ice with phone and a note that says, “If you want to live call 911.” Ratings GOLD!
